Daily Friar 9.2.13 

The Padres were unable to get any scoring going again as they dropped the third and final game against the Dodgers. This was another game of great starting pitching that was ultimately wasted by no run support and someone in the bullpen giving up the winning run. That is two games in a row now that the Padres have lost to a 2-1 score; two games that they should have won. Padres are back home now as they take on the Giants in a three game set. Early start time today because of Labor Day, first pitch is at 12:40 with Ian Kennedy taking on Barry Zito.

A summary of the August transactions for the Padres – Padres 360

Players of the month for August – Richard Dorsha of The Friarhood
